How To Avoid Street Crimes When You Are Out And About

  • Don't carry large sums of money.
  • Try carrying a small change purse with only the money or credit cards that you need,
    instead of a large handbag with straps.
  • Keep your wallet or change purse in an inside jacket or front pants pocket.
  • Don't display cash and other tempting targets such as expensive jewelry.
  • Only carry what is absolutely necessary.
  • Utilize the "buddy system" – walk in pairs or groups whenever possible.
  • Stay alert and tuned into your surroundings.
  • Try to walk in a confident, relaxed manner.
  • Walk on well-lighted busy streets. Stay away from vacant lots, alleys, or construction sites.
  • Trust your instincts. If you feel uncomfortable in a place or situation, leave.
  • Make sure someone knows where you're going and when you expect to return.
  • If attacked, give up your purse or wallet. Don't risk personal safety for material loss.
Public Transportation:

  • Board and exit at well-lighted stops.
  • Don't fall asleep. Stay alert!
  • Hold on to your packages.
  • While riding the bus, trolley, train, or
    subway, sit near the driver if possible.
  • On the train or subway, wait near the
    ticket booth until ready to board. Pick a
    car with several people in it – don't enter
    an empty car.
  • Watch who gets on or off with you.
  • If you feel uneasy, walk directly to a
    place where there are other people.
When You're At Home:
  • Keep doors and windows locked at all
  • All exterior doors should be equipped
    with a 1" deadbolt (including security
    strike plate with 3" screws) and a 180
    degree door viewer.
  • Install supplemental locks on all
    windows and sliding glass doors.
  • Never let strangers in your home
    without checking their identification.
    Call their company if you're not sure.
  • Use only your first initial in phone
    books, directories, and apartment
    lobbies. If you live alone, don't
    advertise it.
  • Hang up immediately on harassing or
    obscene phone calls. If the caller
    persists, call law enforcement and the
    phone company.
  • Don't keep large sums of money in
    your home.
  • Keep bonds, stock certificates, seldom
    worn jewelry, and stamp and coin
    collections in a safe deposit box.
  • Use Direct Deposit for Social Security
    or pension checks.


Con games and swindles are crimes over
which people have total control. The keys to
prevention are alertness to any offer
involving money or property that "sounds
too good to be true," awareness about the
most common con games, and cooperation
with law enforcement.
